Part I: The U.S. Healthcare System Define the U.S. healthcare system by addressing the items below:
- Describe the history of the U.S. health care system. Include at least three of the revolutionary factors (e.g., teachers union in Dallas, Texas; the American Medical Association; Civil War, and the First Marine Hospital, etc.).

- Include the positive and negative contributions of how they affect our health care system.
Part II: The Cost of the U.S. Healthcare System

- Explain how technology has affected costs (e.g., EHR, medical research, equipment improvements like MRI, mammography, etc.) and delivery of quality care (e.g., personalized medicine, mobile services like ePrescribing, disease registries, etc.).
